well considering the options the Fiat Group already has their own version of the Unimog. wouldn't be much of a stretch to see it come in country.

Well, I think the FC would be sold on such a limited basis that it would push it even further out of a reasonable budget for me, espescially since i just think it is badass and a regular old pick up truck does what I need.....the FC would just be a novelty at that point.

Yeah - I heard Chrysler bases ALL of their production plans on what a forum of racist hillbillies that can't afford shit want.

That's the main reason Lasorda didn't work out there - he wanted to use facts not what herds of racists want.

Just kinda curious here...

What is really the difference between generalizing a entire forum with thousands of users as "a forum of racist hillbillies" any different than said racist hillbillies being racist hillbillies?

Also considering you are a member of "a forum of racist hillbillies" does that make you a racist hillbilly as well?

I'd love see them built.

I've never understood why Jeep kept putting out Jeep cars rather than trucks.

What do you expect from someone who drives a Razor.........he probably owns one of those Mini-pocket bikes too.

How many here have drive a forward control anything? I daily drove this for years....



Plus a couple others since I was 18.

They take some getting used to, mainly because you turn 'later' than you think you need to. You drive over a lot of curbs in the process of learning. Handling is weird, to say the least.

I'd love an FC myself, but can't see one being put into production for several safety reasons- even if they don't technically have to pass those tests.

The Gladiator clone has been done before *NuKizer* and hasn't made production.... so I doubt the J will be built either.

This is all to whip up interest in the brand by trotting out reminders of the past.

In that case...

I want this in a 3/4 ton Cummins, with an Allison Transmission, and optional crew cab. No long box option is required with the crew cab.

That should only be a $60k truck...

For some reason, I don't think this would be very good looking in a crew cab.
